Pieve di Cadore is a comune (municipality) in the province of Belluno in the Italian region of Veneto, about 110 kilometres (68 miles) north of Venice and about 35 km (22 miles) northeast of Belluno. "Pieve" means "Parish church". It is the birthplace of the Italian painter Titian.
With its strategic location, the town was a medieval stronghold with fortifications, called the "walled city of the Veneto." The main sight is the Palazzo della Magnifica Comunità ("Palace of the Magnificent Community"), built in 1447 by the eponymous council which then ruled the city. It has a merloned tower which was completed in 1491.
A highway, SS51, connects the town with other communities in the Cadore Dolomite region.
